Annual Membership Replenishment Process (each Spring):

Each Spring, the GFC Nominating Committee (NC) works to fill all upcoming membership vacancies across committees. Nominations are submitted by interested individuals who wish to serve on a committee as an elected representative.

Vacancies during school year: Vacancies may also arise throughout school year. In this instance, the NC would work to ensure that a vacancy is filled in a timely manner as required by a committee.
